It doesn't look like you painted the claws, unless you look really hard at the sides where things conenct :P

The only thing I'd say is paint the claws and scything talons a different color, but otherwise good model.

I like the carapace and the general scheme. Always been a sucker for that black with teal edging thing. I agree with Lonely Tau though about the talons. Should do a lil more work on those. Perhaps hit the very edges with an even lighter grey? Also, I recommend you do a lil shading between the teeth

Well, I agree about the claws; they don't look good. Overall the painting is clean and smooth but flat; you need to learn about shading and highlighting. Even a simple ink wash would probably help here. And who're you kidding about the base? You're never going to finish it! You even said it yourself, 'This is a Carnifex i made a while ago.' ;D

Basing can make all the difference to a model, especially a big base like that. It needn't be a complicated affair either; just glue on some coarse sand and/or fine gravel with PVA, paint it a base colour, then drybrush a lighter or darker colour over the top - Instant base. It won't be the prettiest or most dramatic, but it'll be better than flat green.

The one thing that really bugs me is the bright red eyes...

You didn't use red anywhere else on the model, and all of sudden BAM! It's staring you in the face...

Yeah, the eyes and tongue draw attention to the face, but not in a good way. :-\
